It’s very rare we get such lovely weather during the early May Bank Holiday, but this year most of us basked in glorious sunshine. Although temperatures have been somewhat temperamental since, summer is definitely on its way, so here’s how to look and feel great throughout the warmer spell:
Hit the gym
If you’ve piled on the pounds of late, you might be dreaming of liposuction or a tummy tuck operation to remove excess fat, but surgery is not your only option. Getting up and active could do you the world of good, so pull yourself out of the sofa and hit the gym! Ask a highly-trained personal trainer to devise a fitness plan for you and work up a sweat on the cross-trainer, treadmill or rowing machine. If you really don’t like working out in front of other people or have a fear of Lycra, exercising at home or outdoors will also do the trick, so there’s really no excuse.
Get a glowing tan
With summer rapidly approaching, now’s the perfect time to whip out the fake tan. It’s quick and easy to apply and can help you achieve a sun-kissed glow – even when there are clouds in the sky. Celebrities love it and while some go a little overboard with the colour they choose and end up looking like a wotsit, others know just how to work a darker complexion. Kate Moss, for instance, looked flawless during a naked photo shoot for St. Tropez and admitted she “always feels more confident” when she’s wearing the self-tan brand – probably why she’s now their ambassador.
Wear the latest fashions
If you’re bored of your old wardrobe and fancy spicing up your appearance, there are plenty of new trends out there to explore. Spring/summer fashion is girly, fun and imaginative this year, so take a look at the cute Bermuda shorts on offer or give this season’s peekaboo dresses a go. Bright, bold colours and adornments such as beads and sequins are proving extremely popular, but if you fancy something a little more subtle, black and white have also made a welcome return. Of course, floral designs can also be found at this time of year, so shop around for the best deals.
As the big beach body reveal looms, many people will be thinking about a nip here or a tuck there, but you don’t have to undergo a breast augmentation procedure or a rhinoplasty to look good. These simple tips could do wonders for your confidence, so why not give them a go?
